INGREDIENTS

STEP-BY-STEP-GUIDE

SWEAT THE ONION AND GARLIC

Peel and dice the onion and garlic. Pour the oil into a large saucepan over a medium heat and add the onion and garlic. Sweat for 10 minutes.

ADD THE BEEF

Add the beef mince in large-ish chunks, turn the heat up high and brown the outside for 5 minutes (gives different textures of mince). Stir in spices and carry on cooking for 5 minutes

SIMMER

Add stock cube, tomatoes, kidney beans plus anything else you want from a selection of flavoursome things I often use tomato puree, tomato ketchup, brown sauce, red wine, beer or worcestershire sauce. Bring to the boil for 5 minutes. Put a lid on the pan and turn hob down to the lowest setting - leave for 1 hour, stirring every few minutes. After 1 hour, take lid off and leave to cook for another hour, or until thick, very gloopy texture is achieved. You could use a heat diffuser to keep cooking temperature as low as possible.

SERVE

Serve with boiled rice or cornbread and sour cream. Serves 6
